The sequel to the original Ultimate Avengers film, based on Mark Millar’s ‘The Ultimates’ comic book series, has finally been released.Â The movie wasn’t terrible, just a little underwhelming.Â Better than the first installment, at any rate.
“The greatest set-back of the first installment of the Ultimate Avengers animated franchise was the lack of character development or depth of any kind. Like most team-based movies which have to introduce a large cast with limited time, most characters donâ€™t exceed their standard template or most noteworthy qualities. Ultimate Avengers 2, having already established the cast, gets to work fleshing them out into people you might actually care about. It doesnâ€™t do a spectacular job, but it does make them more believable and likeable.”
